To my family woodworking friends, if you get a chance to look at the sky, this is from stardate.org:
The next meteor shower is the Perseids on August 12. This year there’s no moonlight to interfere. The best time to watch is from 11 p.m. August 12 until dawn the next morning. The best direction to watch is wherever your sky is darkest. If you have a dark sky, you may see a meteor once a minute on average. The shower is also active for several days before and after its peak.
Sounds pretty exciting, at least for me. Good luck viewing.
